I'm 66, and I was really healthy. A month ago I ran six days a week - at least 10k a day. I also went to to the gym three or four days a week to do resistance training.

I used to be morbidly obese, and have diabetes and depression. I decided to control my diet and to ex...

These are two very small and neat bluetooth earphones. They are not physically connected to themselves- or anything else.

They come in a small plastic drawstring sack with only the instructions, in Chinese and English. Well, I say English, but only in the broadest sense...

I have always run on my own, and I have been curious as to what it would be like to run with others. To that end, I decided to do a Parkrun (http://www.parkrun.org.uk). If you are not aware of Parkrun, it is a 5k run held on every Saturday morning, in most major towns...

I have recently been on holiday to Porthleven in Cornwall, which is too far away from a gym for a daily visit. The property we were staying in is on the Southwest Coast Path, so to get my daily dose of exercise I decided to go for runs on it. My only other running expe...

I have recently discovered running. Well, I say recently; I have dabbled in it before, and I have been using a treadmill for a long time, but it is only in the past few weeks that I have embraced running outdoors. And I have found it to be strangely addictive; strangel...

I am of the firm opinion that you can't have too many running shoes, so, to prove my point I have added these to my collection.

Once you become interested in running shoes, you begin to notice their different characteristics. Soles, uppers, their laces, the drop (which...

I recently appeared on my local ITV news as they were doing a report on how type 2 diabetes can be cured through diet and exercise. When I talk to health professionals about what I have done, they say 'yes, that's great - but you have only put your diabetes into remiss...

Taotronics are competing against some big name, high cost wireless earphones, but these are good enough to make me wonder how the big names get away with charging three to six times the price.

These are neat and lightweight. They fit very snugly and comfortably and fe...

Let's face it, when pounding away in the gym, anything to detract from the monotony is helpful. I like listening to music. There are various types of earphones: over ear and in ear, wired and wireless. I prefer in ear - much less cumbersome, and generally I prefer wire...

I think these look awesome, and they feel pretty good too. Beautiful colours, and very comfortable. It has a good amount of bounce in the heel which is what the Ultra Boost is all about, while being firmer in the front. The arch support is very good.

The uncaged bit ref...
